Worst Place
That place is a crack house! The minute I stepped inside it looked dirty and gross. I went up to my room and just as I stepped inside it was dirty and smelled like ass and the kitchen looked disgusting. I didn't end up staying there I was there for like 5 mins and walked out and booked another hotel. I did not feel safe and it was unsanitary, I don't recommend it.

I would not stay here again.
Check in instructions were horrible and it was difficult to contact hotel after 5pm. On arrival thankfully kind gentleman was able to help. Parking was inadequate and off site. No blankets on beds, had to use winter jackets for blankets. Towels covered in other peoples hair. Loudest room I’ve ever slept in. Traffic noise all next night. No curtains and incredibly bright to try and sleep in. If you can ignore all those things the location and price are good.

Worst ever hotel I’ve stayed at. No one was at the reception area and I had to wait to be checked in. Bedding wasn’t clean and was smelly. Floor, bathroom were filthy. The guy who lives on property and helped me was kind atho. Just the location and the whole hotel condition were terrible

Stay Away
Horrible. I booked a room with a kitchenette. The room was dirty - I mean really filthy. There was approximately 2 cups of "stuff" on the ground that could be swept up. There were sticky spots on the floor, and it appeared no one had cleaned beneath the beds in months. The kitchenette didn't have a single dish, cutlery, nor a knife and a cutting board. The air conditioner did not work. The TV only had one channel. There was an ironing board, but no iron. The hair dryer didn't work. There was no hot water for a day. The shower head leaked and sprayed up and out of the shower. The smoke detector was chirping. There were cockroaches in the bathroom. There were cigarette butts and ashes in the night stand drawer. The staff was never around. My key card was rendered useless on my last night and I wasn't able to enter the hotel, nor my room, and there was no staff on hand. There was garbage left lying around in the hallways, including empty liquor bottles.
